Queer Tales of Terror 

As part of our longer term project to create a community of queer and diverse theatre makers and audiences, from April to June 2022, the Kings Head Theatre are looking to produce a season of work that explores the horror genre from a LGBTQ+ and/or Black and Global Majority perspective. Think hauntings, poltergeists, possession, vampires, werewolves, the uncanny, the supernatural, things to go bump in the night.

This will be the first season of work from new Artistic Directors Hannah Price and Mark Ravenhill. Alongside productions led by Mark and Hannah, we’re looking for shows for our late night slots and for our ‘off peak’ Sunday and Monday evening slots. We want all of these projects to reflect the experiences of writers, performers, directors and producers who identify LGBTQIA+. We are particularly keen to hear from queer women, trans and non-binary individuals, as well queer black and global majority artists and producers.

The work should be small cast (no more than four) with lo-fi staging requirements and a maximum running time of 60 minutes. Work that includes a digital element or is digitally driven is particularly welcome.

If you have a script or project you feel fits the above criteria please send it to us using the form here by Wednesday 1 December.

If your work does not fit these criterias, whilst we would still love to hear from you, please send submissions to our general programing form here.

Unfortunately, as a small team, we are not able to offer feedback on any scripts submitted, nor can we guarantee a reply.
